AGREEMENT FOR THE LOAN
Section 2.1 Use of Proceeds. The proceeds of the Loans will be used for working capital and for other general corporate purposes.
Section 2.2 Commitments; Disbursement of Loans; Pro Rata Shares. During the Commitment Period, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, each Lender severally agrees to make Loans to the Borrower in an aggregate amount up to but not exceeding such Lender’s Commitment. Any amounts borrowed under this Section 2.2 and subsequently repaid or prepaid may not be re-borrowed. Subject to Section 2.3(b), all amounts owed hereunder with respect to the Loans shall be paid in full on the Maturity Date.
Whenever the Borrower desires that the Lenders disburse a Loan to the Borrower (each, a Disbursement”), the Borrower shall deliver to the Lenders a written request (a “Disbursement Request”) for a Disbursement at least fifteen (15) Business Days in advance of the proposed disbursement date (the “Disbursement Date”); provided, however, that the first Disbursement Notice shall be deemed delivered on the Agreement Date simultaneously with the execution and delivery hereof. Each Disbursement shall be in an aggregate minimum amount of $500,000 (five hundred thousand dollars) and integral multiples of $100,000 (one thousand dollars) in excess of that amount. Upon satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in Article 4 hereof, each Lender shall fund its Pro Rata Share of the Disbursement.
All Disbursements pertaining to a given Disbursement Request shall be made by Lenders simultaneously and proportionately to their respective Pro Rata Shares, it being understood that no Lender shall be responsible for any default by any other Lender of such other Lender’s obligation to make a Disbursement requested hereunder nor shall any Commitment of any Lender be increased or decreased as a result of a default by any other Lender of such other Lender’s obligation to make a Disbursement requested hereunder. If any Lender (a “Defaulting Lender”) fails for any reason or no reason to fund 100% of a Disbursement Request by the Disbursement Date, then such Lender shall be in default under this Agreement and shall forfeit its right to the Commitment Warrants.
Section 2.3 Payment.
(a) The Borrower shall pay the outstanding principal of all Loans and any Accrued Interest Amounts thereon on September 14, 2019 (the “Maturity Date”).
(b) The Borrower may prepay all or a portion of the outstanding Disbursements upon five (5) days’ notice to the Lenders pertaining to such Disbursement(s), without any prepayment penalty and subject only to the repayment obligations contained in this Section 2.3(b). Each prepayment by the Borrower shall be applied first, to all expenses and indemnification payments then owing to the Lenders (if any), second, to accrued and unpaid interest on the Loans, and third, to the principal balance of the Loans, and shall be allocated among the Lenders in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares. The amount of any prepayment to be applied to principal shall be applied to the payments required under Section 2.3(a) in direct order of maturity. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event that the Borrower provides prepayment notice pursuant to this Section 2.3(b), the Lenders shall retain any conversion rights to which they are entitled under outstanding Notes during the aforementioned five (5)-day period.
Section 2.4 Payments. The Borrower shall pay to each Lender such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of all principal, interest and other amounts due and owing under the Loan Documents. All payments by the Borrower under any of the Loan Documents shall be made without setoff or counterclaim. Payments of any amounts due to the Lenders under this Agreement shall be made prior to 11:00 a.m. New York City time on such date that any such payment is due, at such bank or places as the Lenders shall from time to time designate to the Borrower in writing at least five (5) Business Days prior to the date such payment is due and shall be payable in: (i) Dollars in immediately available funds; (ii) PIK Shares; or (iii) any combination of the foregoing clauses (i) and (ii).

Section 2.5 Taxes.
(a) Any and all payments hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be made, in accordance with this Section 2.5, free and clear of and without deduction for any and all present or future Indemnified Taxes except as required by Applicable Law. If Borrower shall be required by law to deduct any Indemnified Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable hereunder or under any other Loan Document, (i) the sum payable shall be increased by as much as shall be necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions for Indemnified Taxes applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.5), each Lender shall receive an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made (any and all such additional amounts payable shall hereafter be referred to as the “Additional Amounts”), (ii) Borrower shall make such deductions, and (iii) Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law. Borrower shall promptly furnish to the applicable Lender the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment thereof or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to such Lender.
(b) Borrower agrees to pay, and each Lender authorizes Borrower to pay in its name (but without duplication), all Other Taxes. Borrower shall promptly furnish to the applicable Lender the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment thereof or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to such Lender.
(c) Borrower shall reimburse and indemnify, within 10 days after receipt of written demand therefor, each Lender for all Indemnified Taxes (including all Indemnified Taxes imposed on amounts payable under this Section 2.5(c)) paid by such Lender. A reasonably detailed certificate of the applicable Lender(s) setting forth the amounts to be paid thereunder and delivered to Borrower shall be conclusive, absent manifest error.
(d) If a payment to a Lender under this Agreement would be subject to U.S. withholding tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA, such Lender shall deliver to Borrower, at the times prescribed by law or as reasonably requested by Borrower, such documentation as is required in order for Borrower to comply with its obligations under FATCA, to determine that such Lender has or has not complied with its obligations under FATCA, or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment.
(e) If a Lender determines in good faith that it has received a refund from a Governmental Authority of any Indemnified Taxes previously paid or reimbursed by Borrower, such Lender shall promptly pay the amount so paid or reimbursed by the Borrower (not to exceed the amount so refunded) to the Borrower, net of all out-of-pocket expense (including any Taxes imposed thereon) of such Lender incurred in obtaining such refund or making such payment to the Borrower, provided that the Borrower, upon the request of such Lender, agrees to repay the amount paid over to the Borrower (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to such Lender if such Lender is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Nothing in this Section shall require any Lender to disclose any information it deems confidential (including, without limitation, its tax returns) to any Person, including Borrower.
Section 2.6 Costs, Expenses and Losses. If, as a result of any failure by the Borrower to pay any sums due under this Agreement (other than pursuant to Section 2.3(b)) on the due date therefor (after the expiration of any applicable grace periods), the Lenders shall, after applying reasonable mitigation efforts, incur costs, expenses and/or losses, by reason of the liquidation or redeployment of deposits from third parties or in connection with obtaining funds to make or maintain the Commitments, the Loans or any Disbursement, the Borrower shall pay to the Lenders (within 15 days after receipt by it of a certificate from the Lenders setting forth in reasonable detail such costs, expenses and/or losses incurred with supporting documentation) the amount of such costs, expenses and/or losses. For the purposes of the preceding sentence, “costs, expenses and/or losses” shall include, without limitation, any interest paid or payable to carry any unpaid amount and any loss, premium, penalty or expense which may be incurred in obtaining, liquidating or employing deposits of or borrowings from third parties in order to make, maintain or fund the Loans or any portion thereof.
Section 2.7 Interest. The outstanding principal amount of the Notes shall bear interest at the Interest Rate (calculated on the basis of a year of 365 days and the actual number of days elapsed). Interest shall be paid quarterly in arrears commencing on December 1, 2016 and on the first Business Day of each September, December, March and June thereafter (each, an “Interest Payment Date”) until the Maturity Date. Upon notice from the Borrower to the Lenders prior to any of the first five Interest Payment Dates applicable to any Disbursement, all or a portion of the interest (as otherwise payable on such Interest Payment Date) for the applicable Interest Payment Date or Interest Payment Dates shall not be paid in cash but shall be added to the then outstanding amount of said Disbursement (the aggregate amount of all such interest so added, the “Accrued Interest Amount”). The Borrower may provide such notice for any Disbursement on one or more occasions. The Accrued Interest Amount with respect to each Disbursement shall be paid in cash not later than the last Business Day of the sixth calendar quarter following the date of such Disbursement.
Section 2.8 Default Interest. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the outstanding principal balance of the Loans and, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, any overdue interest payments on the Loans or any other amounts owed hereunder, shall thereafter bear interest (including post-petition interest in any proceeding under the United States Bankruptcy Code or other applicable bankruptcy laws) payable on demand at a rate that is two percent (2%) in excess of the Interest Rate.

Such Lender acknowledges receipt of copies of the Borrower’s filings pursuant to the 1934 Act. Based on the information such Lender has deemed appropriate, it has independently made its own analysis and decision to enter into the Loan Documents.

(g) Such Lender understands that the Loan Securities are characterized as “restricted securities” under the U.S. federal securities laws inasmuch as they are being acquired from the Borrower in a transaction not involving a public offering and that under such laws and applicable regulations such securities may be resold without registration under the 1933 Act only in certain limited circumstances.

Each Party agrees that all legal proceedings concerning the interpretations, enforcement and defense of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (whether brought against a Party hereto or its respective affiliates, directors, officers, shareholders, employees or agents) shall be commenced exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in the City of New York. Each Party hereby irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts sitting in the City of New York, borough of Manhattan, for the adjudication of any dispute hereunder or in connection herewith or with any transaction contemplated hereby or discussed herein and hereby irrevocably waives, and agrees not to assert in any suit, action or proceeding, any claim that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of any such court, that such suit, action or proceeding is improper or is an inconvenient venue for such proceeding. Each Party hereby irrevocably waives personal service of process and consents to process being served in any such suit, action or proceeding by mailing a copy thereof via registered or certified mail or overnight delivery (with evidence of delivery) to such Party at the address in effect for notices to it under this Agreement and agrees that such service shall constitute good and sufficient service of process and notice thereof.

Section 6.5 Successors and Assigns.

Upon receipt of a notice of a transfer of an interest in a Note, Borrower shall record the identity of the transferee and other relevant information in the Register, and the transferee shall (to the extent of the interests transferred to such transferee) have all the rights and obligations of, and shall be deemed, a Lender hereunder.

Section 6.8 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in several counterparts, and by each Party on separate counterparts, each of which and any photocopies and facsimile copies thereof shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same agreement.
Section 6.9 Survival.
(a) This Agreement and all agreements, representations and warranties made in the Loan Documents, and in any document, certificate or statement delivered pursuant thereto or in connection therewith, shall be considered to have been relied upon by the other Parties and shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the making of the Loans hereunder regardless of any investigation made by any such other Party or on its behalf, and shall continue in force until all amounts payable under the Loan Documents shall have been fully paid in accordance with the provisions thereof; the Lenders shall not be deemed to have waived, by reason of making the Loans, any Event of Default that may arise by reason of such representation or warranty proving to have been false or misleading, notwithstanding that the Lenders may have had notice or knowledge of any such Event of Default or may have had notice or knowledge that such representation or warranty was false or misleading at the time the Disbursement was made.
(b) The obligations of the Borrower under Sections 1.4 and 2.5 and the obligations of the Borrower and the Lenders under this Article 6 shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loans, or the termination of this Agreement or any provision hereof.
Section 6.10 No Waiver. Neither the failure of, nor any delay on the part of, any Party in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder, or under any Loan Document, shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege hereunder, or under any Loan Document, preclude other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege; nor shall any waiver of any right, power, privilege or default hereunder, or under any Loan Document, constitute a waiver of any other right, power, privilege or default or constitute a waiver of any default of the same or of any other term or provision. No course of dealing and no delay in exercising, or omission to exercise, any right, power or remedy accruing to the Lenders upon any default under this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall impair any such right, power or remedy or be construed to be a waiver thereof or an acquiescence therein; nor shall the action of the Lenders in respect of any such default, or any acquiescence by it therein, affect or impair any right, power or remedy of the Lenders in respect of any other default. All rights and remedies herein provided are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies otherwise provided by law.
Section 6.11 Indemnity.
(a) The Borrower shall, at all times, indemnify and hold each Lender harmless (the “Indemnity”) and each of their respective directors, partners, officers, employees, agents, counsel and advisors (each, an “Indemnified Person”) in connection with any losses, claims (including the reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in defending against such claims), damages, liabilities, penalties, or other expenses arising out of, or relating to, the Loan Documents, the extension of credit hereunder or the Loans or the use or intended use of the Loans, which an Indemnified Person may incur or to which an Indemnified Person may become subject, but excluding Excluded Taxes (each, a “Loss”). The Indemnity shall not apply to the extent that a court or arbitral tribunal of competent jurisdiction issues a final judgment that such Loss resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Indemnified Person. The Indemnity is independent of and in addition to any other agreement of Borrower under any Loan Document to pay any amount to the Lenders, and any exclusion of any obligation to pay any amount under this subsection shall not affect the requirement to pay such amount under any other section hereof or under any other agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 6.11 shall not apply to Indemnified Taxes (which are otherwise addressed in Section 2.5 hereof).
(b) Promptly after receipt by an Indemnified Person of notice of the commencement of any action (including any governmental action), such Indemnified Person shall, if it intends to submit a claim for indemnification under this Section 6.11, deliver to Borrower a written notice of the commencement thereof, and Borrower shall have the right to participate in, and, to the extent Borrower so desires, to assume control of the defense thereof with counsel mutually satisfactory to Borrower and the Indemnified Person, as the case may be.
(c) An Indemnified Person shall have the right to retain its own counsel with the documented reasonable fees and out-of-pocket expenses to be paid by the Borrower, if, in the reasonable opinion of counsel for the Indemnified Person, the representation by counsel selected by Borrower would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between such Indemnified Person and any other party represented by such counsel in such proceeding. The Borrower shall pay for only one separate legal counsel for each Indemnified Person. The failure of an Indemnified Person to deliver written notice to the Borrower within a reasonable time of the commencement of any such action shall not relieve the Borrower of any liability to the Indemnified Person under this Section 6.11, except to the extent that Borrower is actually prejudiced in its ability to defend such action.
Section 6.12 No Usury. The Loan Documents are hereby expressly limited so that in no contingency or event whatsoever, whether by reason of acceleration or otherwise, shall the amount paid or agreed to be paid to the Lenders for the Loans exceed the maximum amount permissible under Applicable Law. If from any circumstance whatsoever fulfillment of any provision hereof, at the time performance of such provision shall be due, shall involve transcending the limit of validity prescribed by law, then, ipso facto, the obligation to be fulfilled shall be reduced to the limit of such validity, and if from any such circumstance the Lenders shall ever receive anything which might be deemed interest under Applicable Law that would exceed the highest lawful rate, such amount that would be deemed excessive interest shall be applied to the reduction of the principal amount owing on account of the Loans, or, if such deemed excessive interest exceeds the unpaid balance of principal of the Loan, such deemed excess shall be refunded to the Borrower. All sums paid or agreed to be paid to the Lenders for the Loans shall, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, be deemed to be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread throughout the full term of the Loans until payment in full so that the deemed rate of interest on account of the Loans is uniform throughout the term thereof. The terms and provisions of this Section shall control and supersede every other provision of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
Section 6.13 Further Assurances. From time to time, the Borrower shall perform any and all acts and execute and deliver to the Lenders such additional documents as may be necessary or as reasonably requested by the Lenders to carry out the purposes of any Loan Document or any or to preserve and protect the Lenders’ rights as contemplated therein.
Section 6.14 Termination. The Borrower may upon 15 days’ notice to the Lenders terminate this Agreement, and the other Loan Documents (other than the Warrants) upon payment in full of the Obligations (other than under the Warrants).
Section 6.15 Lenders’ ObligationsSection 6.16. The obligations of the Lenders hereunder are several, and no Lender shall be responsible for the obligations or Commitment of any other Lender hereunder. Nothing contained herein or in any other Loan Document, and no action taken by the Lenders pursuant hereto or thereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Lenders as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity. Anything in this Agreement or any other Loan Document to the contrary notwithstanding, each Lender hereby agrees with each other Lender that each Lender shall be permitted to take any action to protect or enforce its rights arising out of this Agreement or any Note or otherwise with respect to the Obligations without first obtaining the prior written consent of the other Lender, it being the intent of the Lenders that any such action to protect or enforce rights under this Agreement and any Note or otherwise with respect to the Obligations shall be independent rights of action. Any Lenders that are Affiliates as of any date of determination shall constitute one (1) creditor holding a single claim for purposes of determining whether a class of claims has made an election pursuant to § 1111(b) of the Bankruptcy Code and for determining whether a class of claims has accepted or rejected a plan pursuant to § 1126 (c) of the Bankruptcy Code. In the event of a bankruptcy of the Borrower, the Lenders that are Affiliates of one another shall not take or agree to take actions inconsistent with their agreement to be deemed one (1) creditor holding a single claim.
